For $45, today’s deal gets you a two-person team registration to the Urban Dare Austin adventure race on Saturday, March 5 (a $90 value). Check-in begins at 11 a.m. for the day's quest, which starts off at noon at Paradise Café on 401 E. 6th Street.
The Urban Dare adventure race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. A dozen trivia-based clues lead contestants to checkpoints all over Austin where they must use a camera to document their presence and, in some cases, the completion of challenges, such as scaling a wall or completing a puzzle. In addition to running and walking, contestants may use public transportation to move from checkpoint to checkpoint, though taxis, cars, and bikes are off-limits. Races generally last less than four hours.
The top five teams win free entry in the Super Dare, a Pasadena, California–located escalation of the Urban Dare concept, which takes place on March 12 and 13 and features a $5,000 grand prize. Proceeds from the race are used to benefit breast-cancer research.
Winning teams must provide their own transportation to the Super Dare in Pasadena.
